The Blood Kiss




The Blood Kiss

By Dennis Etchison

Following his first two acclaimed collections, The Dark Country and Red Dreams, Etchison’s much-anticipated third volume of
wildly original stories continues to redefine modern horror. From the freeway off-ramps of Los Angeles to the darkest passages of the human heart, these are the visions of a writer whose imagination knows no boundaries.

Published exclusively as a limited-edition hardcover in 1988, this legendary collection of dark fantasy tales is now available for the first time in 25 years.

“Dennis Etchison’s writing is a disturbing marvel.” — Richard Christian Matheson

“Horror’s greatest inconoclast.” — Garrett Peck

“Dennis Etchison is one of the jewels of our field. He has raised the short story — whether it be supernatural, science fiction, psychological suspense, or, most provocatively, an indefinable combination of several or all of these — to a level of high artistry that, among current writers, perhaps only Ramsey Campbell and Thomas Ligotti can match.” — S.T. Joshi

“The finest writer of psychological horror this genre has produced.” — Karl Edward Wagner
